If you’re able to return to work and are therefore employable, your social security benefits would stop. You have an affirmative duty to advise Social Security that you’re now working. They’re going to find out anyway, and it is criminal to continue to collect social security disability and be working at the same time. There are certain exceptions. Social Security will allow a trial work period to see whether or not you can in fact hold a job on a continuing basis. In other words, some individuals will very much want to return to the labor force for a variety of reasons, including their own self-respect, so they’re going to exert themselves beyond the point which one could sustain over any period of time. Aside from a situation where one is attempting to go back to work in a trial period, returning to work means the end of social security disability.
